The album artwork has many angles/sides to it and once again inspired by my early Escher obsession. It heavily features impossible constructions, explorations of infinity, architecture and possible tessellations. Its all about Perceptions and I wanted this artwork to compliments Dave's album title: 'PERCEPTIONS'.
I love the way that you can blend one image into another without impact - blurring the edges, dovetailing two images into one that creates an image that stand on its own. This creates thought processes and fictional stories which begin to emerge and form interest in each persons mind. The exciting part is that, like music, it touches each person in a different way depending on their make up, personality and viewpoint.

The brief for this album was how people’s perceptions differ, where a group of people may see the same thing and describe it completely different, differing light and shade if you will. Tristan just seemed to get it straight away, I was quite taken aback by his obvious style and understanding of the brief.
